From the McLean County Community Action (MCCA) website, the group that runs Mayor’s Manor: https://mccainc.org/who-we-are/our-history
The apartments are located on the west side of downtown:
It is one block from the Coliseum, if any shows are held – visitors likely have to walk by.
The property used to be nicely maintained. Not anymore. There are perennials, but they are buried by weeds. This didn’t happen overnight! So much for an attractive downtown, I do know Tari Renner worked closely with MCCA. Tari?
What would happen if your property in Bloomington looked like this? Maybe MCCA ran out of money for maintenance, quasi-government programs always do. Are the residents allowed to help? Has anybody asked them? Maybe teach some life skills for those able to pull a few weeds? Ask the community for help?
